Eis forErosion

Erosion is the process by which something becomes eroded. Something is eroded by being worn away slowly over time, usually from the action of wind or running water. Even the hardest rock can slowly become eroded. Erosion is a problem if it happens too fast, for example when trees and plants are removed by people and then all the good soil is washed away because there is nothing holding it together anymore.
